 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]FSOE Excelsior is the very successful progressive side of FSOE and the superb EP that came in August contains two equally powerful tracks that any  DJ who supports big room trance will enjoy. Firstly is the superb End Game by the one and only Monoverse. The track is a driving big room trance mayhem with pulsating basslines, pounding tough drums, techy grooves, electro touched sounds and superb breakdown with heavenly atmosphere followed by the full on hands in the air moment. It's one of those tracks that sound extremely powerful whenever and wherever is played. Alexander Spark service the modern neo big room spanker Formentera. Techy wobbly grooves, crunchy electro basslines, heavenly voices, epic melodies, cinematic strings and playful arrangement. The breakdown is dominated from the sensitive and truly touching piano melody until the ravey euphoric synthy hooks are unleashed upon the bouncy fat groove to lead us to the emotional climax that will make you jump and reach the stars and all the planets you wish to visit! #PureGold Love it [/content]
